Under Mikel Arteta's management, Arsenal have won just twice in their last seven matches and are falling behind in the title race with Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta is currently the manager of Premier League side Arsenal FC, following in the footsteps of Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg. The former Everton player has brought the club back into title challenges and top-four hopes, showcasing his managerial skills.

Mikel Arteta's managing career

Before transitioning to a managerial role, Arteta had a successful career as a professional football player. He retired in 2016 at the age of 34. Arteta's playing career included stints at various clubs such as Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Everton, and Rangers.

During his time at Arsenal as a player, Arteta contributed to the team's success by winning two FA Cups. His retirement marked the beginning of a new chapter in his football journey.

Following his retirement, Mikel Arteta embarked on a coaching career. The Spaniard started his coaching career as an assistant coach for Manchester City after retiring from playing in 2016. During his time with the club until 2019, he won two Premier League titles, two EFL Cups, and the FA Cup.

In December 2019, he subsequently became the head coach and manager of Arsenal, his former club. In his first match as coach, he won against Manchester United on New Year's Day. In the same year, he led Arsenal to their fourth FA Cup Final in seven years, defeating Chelsea in the final. He became the first person to win the FA Cup as both an Arsenal captain and coach.

Plans for new season

Arsenal have spent 248 days at the top of the Premier League this season, but their hope of a Premier League title is fading after having won just twice in their last seven matches while City have powered to the top with 11 consecutive victories. City only needs to secure three points from their final three games to guarantee their status as only the second club in Premier League history to achieve a three-peat. And with such a nearly impossible condition, Arsenal and Arteta are looking ahead to the next season.

Arteta has been vocal about his ambitions for Arsenal, stating that he wants a major shake-up to prepare the team to challenge Manchester City again in the coming season. He is looking to bolster the spine of the team by adding more physicality and presence, along with greater squad depth.

According to GOAL, the former Arsenal captain has identified areas that require reinforcement, such as the center-back position, full-backs, midfield, and the right-wing. Some transfer targets include James Maddison, Marc Guehi, Evan Ndicka, and Moises Caicedo.

Salary and Net Worth

Mikel Arteta's salary has been a topic of interest among football enthusiasts. In the middle of 2022, Arteta negotiated a salary increase, and he now earns a reported £8.3 million per year, which translates to approximately £158,000 per week. This substantial income places a significant amount of pressure on Arteta to deliver positive results for the club.
